MUSICIAN Born:

Andrew Lamb

ANDREW LAMB (saxophones, flutes) was born in Clinton, North Carolina and grew up in Chicago and in South Jamaica, Queens. Having studied with AACM charter member Kalaparush Maurice McIntyre, Mr. Lamb came into New York’s "avant-garde" community in the ’70s, becoming an active presence in the vibrant Bedford-Stuyvesant arts world at that time, and winning a Brooklyn Arts Council grant. In 1994, he composed all the pieces on his first leader recording, "Portrait in the Mist" (Delmark), which featured vibraphonist Warren Smith, bassist Wilber Morris, and drummer Andrei Strobert. Andrew Lamb has since recorded duets with Warren Smith ("Duet," WISland, ’99 and "The Dogon Duo," Engine Studios, '05) and "Dance of the Prophet," a trio recording with Eugene Cooper and Andrei Strobert (Kiki Records)

Rock the Casbah of Love

Read "Rock the Casbah of Love" reviewed by Patrick Burnette

Before the boys get to two releases hot off the presses, they spend some time with a Steve Kuhn release recorded soon after he parted ways with Art Farmer and started dating Monica Zetterlund. Then it's on to a fairly “out" recording by a veteran reed player and a less world-music-than-it-sounds release from a bass clarinetist ...

And let's not forget about creative music's love affair ...

Mark Lomax Trio: Isis and Osiris

Read "Isis and Osiris" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Record collectors and DJs are fond of the term “spiritual jazz." Like most colloquialisms, its meaning is nebulous and vague; more emotional than factual, more indicative of a feeling that the music projects, as opposed to a distinct lineage or coterie of musicians. For many, the term refers to jazz that incorporates African and Middle Eastern ...

Juan Pablo Carletti/Tony Malaby/Christopher Hoffman: Niño/Brujo

Read "Niño/Brujo" reviewed by Mark Corroto

A funny thing happened on the way to a free jazz trio session. What's funny is that leader Juan Pablo Carletti brought seven unique compositions for his trio to perform. The Argentinian-born, New York-based drummer recruited tenor saxophonist Tony Malaby and cellist Christopher Hoffman for this recording. An inconspicuous drummer-led session. Carletti's last decade ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
